"Merry Christmas guys!! I've been spending Christmas morning with Lesson 7! Such a great lesson! Again, let me say how awesome it is to have lessons that are very well focused (no going off on confusing tangents), simple sentences, and very slowly spoken. I can't tell you how helpful that is for a very beginning learner. Slow and simple. Keep it up - this lesson package is a true gem!!"

"I was really pleased with the course "How Korean Sentences Work." I'm a upper beginner and have been studying Korean for a while now, but I always struggled with the word order when it came to making longer Korean sentences, and sometimes sentences in general. This video course had exactly what I was looking for! Hyunwoo ssi, did a great job breaking down the process. The first lessons are about how Korean structure works in general, such as particles, conjunctions, etc. Although I learned them through their audio lessons, learning it again through a video course really helped to reinforce everything. By the time you get to the last lessons, learning how to make a long sentence is not at all difficult. If you need a little help getting your word order straight when making sentences, or just sentence trouble in general, I wholeheartedly recommend this video course. I just wish I could give it a high rating. Great job TTMIK!"

    This course has been amazing for helping me understand more complicated sentences, which was something I always struggled with! I can’t wait to practice more 😄

  6. Chuck,

    This course has been super helpful to me. I’m happy to be able to think about sentence structure separate from vocabulary. But, I could use some help. In Lesson 13, I’m struggling to understand the inner structure/outer structure distinction. Where could I find a visual or written explanation of what is “inner” and what is “outer?”

    • sara,

      i also struggled with the conversion of 저는 to 제가 . i am hoping to learn more about this in the other courses, but would be grateful if TTMIK could direct me. otherwise, i am loving the course, it is just more time and practice i need

  18. Angela Galvis,

    This was a very helpful video course. I was struggling with the sentences structure, but you guys saved me! I am currently working on Level 2 and this is certainly one of the most useful material. I would like to practice more the topics that you guys went through in this course. Would you recommend me any way of doing that?

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      Thank you for studying with us! We recommend you to repeat the course several times to get used to it, and you should start to read more simple sentences to check whether you understand the course well. If you have more questions, please email us:)

  19. Rebecca Borton,

    Currently I’m going over some lessons in level 1 again as there were some bits I wasn’t to sure on but thought I’d try this in between to give me a bit of a break and honestly I understand more of level 1 now that I have. It’s so informative and easy to follow I’d honestly recommend anyone who is struggling a bit to go over these lessons along side your level and see how much it helps you! 😀

    • TalkToMeInKorean,
